Mula DVD

Mula: The Long-Eared Hero
of the Old Spanish Trail

(98 Minutes)

Everyone wanted mules.  Americans were on the move…headed west and there was no sturdier, more powerful and reliable means of travel than a mule. These California mules, along with finely trained Vaquero horses were driven twelve hundred miles up the Old Spanish Trail from Los Angeles to Santa Fe and then seven hundred more miles up the Santa Fe Trail to Independence Missouri.

Today, mule people are just as enthusiastic about their mules as they were in the 1800s. Mules are tough, intelligent, easy keepers, always ready to do the job.

Meet the men who know the mule’s secrets and sing his praises — packers Ross Knox and Graham Goodfield, mule traders Rufus and Dickie Reese, log-skidder Thomas Summers, draft mule man Charile Reed.

Stories featured on the DVD include the history of Old Spanish Trail, the importance of mules, the packing tradition, the genetics of mules and mule breeding, the passion of modern day packers and the award-winning music of Dave Stamey and Juni Fisher.

The Spanish Trail Suite DVD

Spanish Trail Suite - Video and Music DVD

The Spanish Trail Suite composed by Marshall McDonald and Steven Sharp Nelson and performed by the Orchestra of Southern Utah has teamed with Video Ideas Production of Chattanooga, Tennessee to create a new orchestra experience combining stunning time-lapse video of storms unfolding, moon rises, sunsets and re-creations of trail scenes.

The Spanish Trail Suite was commissioned by the Orchestra of Southern Utah with help from the National Endowment of the Arts and local foundations. The composers created a piece celebrating the three cultures which settled the West along the route of trails stretching from Santa Fe to Los Angeles. The interactive project produced by Video Ideas focuses on more than 100 miles of the Trail in Iron and Washington Counties.

Brent Tom, local Paiute caller, serves as the guest soloist for the Sunrise movement. His inspired performance adds depth to the first movement which honors the local Paiute Tribe.

Telly Award Winner of a 2008 Telly Award.
